Anniversary Getaway

We chose this resort to celebrate our 27th anniversary. The trip from Santo Domingo Airport to Luxury Bahia Príncipe takes about three hours. The last 45 minutes of this trip was pretty hair raising. We traveled through a very populated area as kids were getting out of school. There were children everywhere, either on foot or on a motorcycle. Our driver dodged them like it was a video game. He raced through the streets, honking at anyone who slowed us down. It seemed as if we came within millimeters of wiping out entire families of four as we sped past them on their motorcycle. We also weaved our way through a herd of cattle that was being moved down the street, not to mention all the dogs that roam freely. We were very relieved when we arrived at our destination, but we were a little concerned if we had chosen the resort that was right for us. The building where we checked in was very unimpressive, as was the staff. Outside, some construction was going on, and some children were hanging around, pestering us to buy a shell for a dollar. All concerns disappeared after a short ferry ride to our island resort. We were greeted with a drink and a cool washcloth, and were taken directly to our rooms. We were in building 26, which overlooks some of the beautiful resort grounds. This location was great for us. It was away from the hustle and bustle of the main building, and a relatively short walk to the pools and beach. Our room was very clean and quiet. There was no smell of mildew and no bug concerns. Anything we needed was promptly attended to. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The refrigerator was always well stocked. We made dinner reservations shortly after arriving at the resort. We were able to reserve three of the restaurants; the remaining nights we ate at the buffet. My husband and I are not picky eaters at all, but we found the buffet food to be average, at best. However, the food in the restaurants was wonderful! The beach was very nice. We never had trouble finding chairs, and we never felt crowded. The water was very nice. No need for water shoes here as there is a sandy bottom. There is a small rocky area which is good for snorkeling and seeing some starfish. There was very little seaweed. The pools are nice, too. Again, there were plenty of chairs. The pool closest to the beach was dirty. There were a lot of little bugs floating on the surface, and a nasty brown foam that gathered in one area. The other large pool in the center of the resort was very clean. We spent most of our time at the beach. We also went to the public beach on the island. This is a really nice beach, too. Be prepared for the vendors to pressure you to make a purchase. The beach is not as clean here as its not maintained by the resort. The beach chairs are pretty worn looking. But the water is very pretty with a nice sandy bottom and there are some good snorkeling areas. Back to the resort, another nice feature to mention is that there are no towel cards for beach towels. There are two towels in your room when you check in. Those can be traded in for fresh ones at the towel stations as often as you like. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our resort choice and would recommend this to other travelers.

Perfect Getaway!

The Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado is the best all inclusive adults only resort that we have stayed at in the past 7 years!! The service is impeccable. The staff is WONDERFUL. The resort is Beautiful! Where to begin?? The Transfer. . . from Santo Domingo Airport was not that bad. It took about 2 1/4 hours and we got to enjoy the scenery along the way. Our Amstar driver also offered to stop at any time we wanted. The Check in. . .on the mainland so quick and easy. We happened to thankfully arrive about 10 minutes before the next ferry left, so we were very lucky. The ferry schedule in the afternoon is a little intermittent for guests of the resort as most guest leave early in the morning for excursions and return later in the evening. Ferry to the island. . .about 7-8 minutes and beautiful! You can see the public beach as you round the island. Welcome to Paradise. . .we were greeted with a cool towel at the dock and a welcome drink up in the main building. The Lobby is beautiful! We arrived a little after 1pm, therefore our room wasn't ready so we met the head butler and were filled in on the resort and made our dinner reserviations for the week. We also went and enjoyed lunch as we had been up since 2 am. Lobby Bar . . .we spent some time here after walking around a bit waiting for our room. This is the BEST Bar at the resort. Top shelf liquor as best you can get here. Walkie is an awesome barternder who welcomed us each night! He held chairs for us whenever possible and was always prepared with our drink as soon as he saw us! The Room . . .AMAZING!! We had a Junior Deluxe Suite in Villa 9. Spacious doesn't even describe the room. It is larger than most apartments! Air conditioning and fans were PERFECT! The balcony was huge with a table & chairs, 2 lounge chairs and a jacuzzi tub (covered). We were able to enjoy the jacuzzi on 2 occassions late at night while there was a thunderstorm in the surrounding area. Very picturesque and romatic. The beds are hard if you don't FYI. We liked them so it wasn't a problem for us. We used the pillow menu to get our favorite pillow through our Butler, Jose. He was great checking in with us each day to find out if we needed anyting at all and to ask which aromatherapy scent we wanted in our room each night when they turned down the bed. A Very Nice Touch! Dining. . .The Buffet. . .I will say Breakfast and Dinner were best at the buffet. We were not fans of the lunch menu each day, although they tried to change it up, it seemed pretty much the same. The Restaurants are to DIE FOR! We HIGHLY recommend Rodizio and Don Pablo. We wish we could have eaten at both again! The Meditteranean was delicious as well. . .They had the BEST sangria there! Unfortunately we didn't have the chance to try Portofino. Beaches. . .STUNNING!!! We enjoyed both the wave beach and the calm beach. We had a TD9 go over the island one on the nights we were there, so the resort pulled in all chairs and packed everything away. I have to say, the next morning we only notice that the tide came up real high on the wavy beach to bring sand onto the resort walkway, other that that it was gorgeous! We found the most beautiful conch shells after the storm right on the beach! Unfortunately we did not go to the public beach while we stayed. The calm beach had the entertainiment crew working the games and getting people involved that wanted to. The Beach Bar is great too! Wenny is a great bartender who is always Happy Happy and Smiling from ear to ear! The Pools. . .The best pool is the beach pool. You can enjoy the ocean breezes and see both beaches from here. We didn't care for the quiet pool up above or the Jacuzzi pool as they were both too warm for our liking. However each pool has a bar and there are always plenty of chairs available no matter where you go!! The Entertainment Team. . . Mini Me and Bernardino were always welcoming us throughout each day! They got me to dance and were always smiling. They are available all day long running games in the morning and again in the afternoon and then taking care of the entertainment each night after dinner. They worked very long days!! All in all, my husband and I both said this would be one place that we would actually go to again. . .and we always try new places!! It truly was the perfect getaway!!

MOST HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE

The resort itself is stunning, but the experience I had I would not wish upon anyone. I stayed at this resort in September 2015, on my second night at this resort I had an unknown male break into my room through a window. I woke up and saw this man standing over our bed ( I was sharing a room with my girl cousin) I immediately screamed, the perpetrator ran and left out the window. I was petrified! We called the lobby to let them know what had just transpired, it took the resort over half an hour to get to us! we did not know what to do, we didn't know what was this man's intentions or whether or not he was armed. To make a long story short, the resort did nothing to make this horrible experience up to us. We ended up leaving this hotel and I changed my flight to leave the Dominican Republic. The executive at this hotel never called the police or reached out to us about the what was being done about this issue. If you're traveling to this hotel alone or as a females only trip, I'd advise you stay elsewhere. Never in my life had I imagine that something like this would happened at a resort like Cayo Levantado but indeed it did occurred. Not only was this a traumatizing experience but having the hotel personnel not take it serious is like a slap on the face! they even charged us the night that this happened! where we ended up staying up all night at the lobby fearing that this perpetrator was some where in the island. The resort is secluded on an island, boats don't come in or out this island after midnight. This incident occurred approximately half an hour after 1am, the perpetrator was never found, which means he was still in the resort property, unless he swam off the island which I doubt.They had the audacity to tell us that they will not charge us a penalty for leaving the resort early!! as if we were leaving for some minor incident. Hotel Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado, we left because we felt unsafe and had a man break into our hotel villa in the middle of the night!!!!!!!! I believe that the person that perpetrator this crime was a hotel employee who was trying to take advantage of two single girls staying in a room. I have written a more extensive review on tripadvisor last year after the incident.

Everything and Much Much More

I will keep this short and sweet, but we stayed at the Bahia Principe on November 15-22. Almost all of the reviews were very positive and that was one of the reasons for choosing this resort. Anyone that says they had a terrible time must be a stick in the mud. We had a great time and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We stayed in Villa 4 on the 2nd floor and could not of been more satisfied with the room and view. In fact, it was beyond our expectations. The only drawback was the food at the Mediterranean and Italian restaurant, but Don Pablo and the Buffet were great. Great service, great resort and I would recommend this resort to my family and friends in a heartbeat. If your considering this resort, do not over think it....Just Go!
